The Philadelphia Eagles won on the road to open the year and will play their first home game of the season in prime time tonight on Prime Video. Jalen Hurts and company take on the Minnesota Vikings, who are led by wideout Justin Jefferson, the league’s leader in receptions and receiving yards last year. After losing at home in Week 1, despite Jefferson hauling in nine catches for 150 yards, the Vikings face a tough road test against the Eagles. Last year, the Eagles made it to the Super Bowl and are among the favorites in the NFC to return to the title game.
Kickoff for the Vikings-Eagles game on Thursday Night Football is set for 8:15 p.m. ET (5:15 p.m. PT) tonight with the game streaming nationally on Prime Video and for free on Twitch.
Keep reading to see your options for watching Thursday Night Football on Prime Video, Twitch, NFL Plus and — if you live in the home market of the Vikings or Eagles — a local network channel.
With YouTube and YouTube TV now the exclusive home of NFL Sunday Ticket, along with games also streaming on Paramount Plus, Peacock and ESPN Plus, there’s lots for NFL fans to keep track of this season. Check out our picks for the best live TV streaming services for NFL fans in 2023.
TNF Streaming: Prime Video, Twitch and NFL Plus
Thursday Night Football games are streamed nationally on Amazon Prime Video, giving NFL fans more incentive than free two-day shipping to sign up for an Amazon Prime account for $15 a month or $139 a year. You can also subscribe only to Prime Video for $9 a month.
Fans in the local market of each team playing on Thursday night will be able to watch on an over-the-air station, while those who don’t pay for either of Amazon’s services can watch for free on Prime Video’s Twitch channel (Twitch is also owned by Amazon).
If you subscribe to NFL Plus, the league’s $7-per-month streaming service (or $15 a month with Red Zone included), you can also stream the game without subscribing to Prime or Prime Video. Note that NFL Plus viewing is limited to watching on just a phone or tablet, not on a computer or TV.
Can I watch Thursday Night Football on local TV?
Yes, you can, if you live in the local market of either of the teams playing on Thursday. For this week, that’s KMSP Fox 9 in Minnesota and WTXF Fox 29 in Philly. There are two ways to watch local channels on your TV. The first is with a live TV streaming service. And the second is with an over-the-air antenna, if you live in an area that has good reception.
All five of the live TV streaming services carry Fox, but not every service carries every local network, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries Fox in your particular area.
All the live TV streaming services above offer free trials, allow you to cancel anytime and require a solid internet connection. Looking for more information? Check out our live TV streaming services guide.
